Who Needs Paris? These New Private Villa Rentals Put You in the Heart of Provence

While everyone’s heading to Paris for the Summer Olympics, Onefinestay’s new collection of villa rentals might make you want to jet off to Provence instead.

The British hospitality brand just unveiled a slew of high-end vacation offerings around the South of France, including abodes in sought-after locales like Gordes, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, and Ménerbes. The company’s latest additions are an expansion of its already robust portfolio, which includes rentals in the City of Lights, Cannes, and Saint-Tropez.

In Provence, we’re talking residences with 24-hour concierge service, along with tons of customizable amenities to enhance your stay. Think everything from daily housekeeping to private chefs, childcare, a fleet of luxury vehicles, and off-site excursions. Of course, most of the properties also feature outdoor areas, swimming pools, and Mediterranean Sea views.

You can rent Bastide de St Martin in Provence.

There are three stately homes in Provence’s Luberon region, an area dotted with hilltop towns, olive groves, and lush valleys. Most notably is Bastide de St Martin, an authentic Provençal villa that can sleep up to 24 guests. Nestled into the countryside, the home can be booked for $3,525 per night and comprises 12 bedrooms, an outdoor tennis court, a heated pool, and a sprawling patio for alfresco dining.

Near the famous village of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, an 18th-century French farmhouse starts at $2,123 per night. Dubbed Mas Pascal, the stone-clad digs accommodate 12 guests across six bedrooms. In Gordes, the six-bedroom La Vite is perched high up on a clifftop overlooking the scenic Luberon Regional National Park. Here, you can step out onto any of the terraces to watch the sunset over the mountains, spend your time doing laps in the heated pool, or cheffing it up at the outdoor kitchen ($2,115 per night). The ancient village is one of the most famous in Provence, so you’d be remiss not to venture into town at least once.

La Vite is outfitted with contemporary furnishings and exposed beams.

Not far from the historic city of Avignon sits Noves, an idyllic seven-bedroom villa for up to 14 guests. Starting from $1,654 per night, the stone-clad abode feels super modern on the inside and sports a sleek dining area and fully-fitted chef’s kitchen. Plus, the property has a large swimming pool with plenty of sun loungers so you can kick up your feet with a glass of wine—which certainly wouldn’t be the worst way to spend your Provençal holiday.
